    Shizuoka Pref. Gotembashi Inno 1382-1

    去年の夏に行って来ましたが、木々に囲まれているため涼しく散策できます。 但し、虫よけ対策はしておかないと駄目です。それと、トイレが少ないため、予め用足しをしてから行くのが良いでしょう。また、近くに自衛隊の演習場があるせいか、時折、銃声が聞こえてくるので、非日常的な空間とも言えますが、大小の風穴からの心地よい風に癒されます。 近くにある御胎内温泉の露天風呂もお勧め!

Shizuoka Main Areas

around-area-map

With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
